What Should You Know About Your Mercedes Maintenance?

Aug 15, 2018

Any German import auto is a valuable and treasured investment, especially your Mercedes! With strategic maintenance and ongoing care, you can extend the life of your Mercedes and keep your vehicle looking brand new at any age.

Service Every 10,000 Miles

It is highly recommended that you bring your Mercedes in for a rigorous 27-point service inspection every 10,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. This inspection covers every major maintenance need that your import auto might have:

  • Oil and oil filter replacement

  • Wiper blade replacement

  • Fluid level check and correction

  • Tire pressure and brake pad thickness

  • Electrical systems check

Always Maintain Strong Battery Connection

The battery in your Mercedes car is one of the most important components of your vehicle. Mercedes are especially sensitive to battery voltage since the cars are built with state of the art equipment and electronics. If your car battery is more than five years old, it may not hold the charge needed to maintain the electricity required for your Mercedes.

Your car can actually continue to run properly while different systems and control units start to malfunction. Many Mercedes owners don’t realize the problems are battery-related. This is why it’s important to be proactive with your car’s battery health. Be sure to replace the battery before problems develop. 

Remember the 50,000 Mile Milestone

In addition to regular 10,000 mile inspections, your Mercedes will be due for an important 50,000 mile inspection that checks the structure and wear of brake pads, battery, accessory drive belt, and other car parts that are likely to need replacement. These items are also evaluated at 100,000 miles and 150,000 miles to ensure your car is running on the best parts as it ages.
